I usually gain about 20-25 lbs over the winter due to various reasons (mainly inactivity and pigging out), however every year after my birthday I pick back up my low-carb lifestyle to shed weight for the summer.
It's pretty simple and once you get the routine down, you'll shed 20-30 pounds in about four months or less.

Beginning Monday Feb 24th 2014

Eliminate carbs (15-20 grams or less daily) with a high protein-fat/low carb diet for about two weeks strait or until your body goes into a state of Ketosis. You'll drop the pounds fast then begin to plateau. Then cut back to five days a week by switching to high carb/low fat for the weekends in order to shock your metabolism.  Easy as pie. I got tons of recipes and food/drink choices to share to keep it interesting. If you down, holla at me, we'll keep each other motivated and swap recipes and food choices.

Oh, and you should refrain from drinking alcohol to speed up the process because your body will burn alcohol before it burns fat. If you must drink, Vodka and diet coke was my drink of choice on my off weekends. However, I quit drinking totally, so I'm looking forward to burning body fat at faster pace.

Low carb/carb free is the truth
I just wish I didn't love them so much Cry
Started about 6 months ago.

I cut out alcohol 2 months ago.
Again, so damn hard lol.

My next goal is to cut back on sugar.

I can't give up potatoes and bread cold turkey, but good luck to y'all.

I'll definitely stay tuned in for some good recipes so I can at least cut back some.

well the best part about it is you eat whatever you want on the weekends once you start ketosis. Besides, I usually make my own bread anyway!

You can order it on amazon. It taste like bread, pancakes, pizza dough, cookies, cake or whatever else you decide to bake with it. I usually make peanut butter cookies with unsweetened almond milk to sooth my sweet tooth!
I've been doing this for years and have done tons of research to make meals that are seemingly normal!

Tru, I'd try it but I might fall out. Sometimes I don't consume enough calories in a day. Eat so many things on the run. But thanks for that mix idea. Might have to look that up on Amazon. That'll be good for my husband.

I keep a pack of low-carb tortillas in my car. If I feel like a whopper, I gets that sh*t and replace the bun with a tortilla! I swear the options are limitless, plus you'll look forward to the weekends to treat yourself!

Milk used to be my biggest drawback till I discovered the unsweetened Almond Milk. This is easier than you may think.

I've been doing this for years but I'm bored with food choices now.   I can't wait to see some recipes.  This is harder when you have a whole family of bad actors (snack monsters) but I'm pretty good at making good choices for myself like skipping the carb serving of rice/potatoes/etc. and just having the meat and veggies.  

These are a delicious snacks for the sweet craving but I think you need to wait a couple of weeks in before you have them:

Atkins                              Advantage Caramel Chocolate Nut Roll, 5.0 Each , Bars

The crustless quiche saves my mornings because breakfast is the hardest meal for me to give up carbs in since I love homefries and could eat them everydayCry

I love carbquik! I have a whole unused box in my cabinet now. I get mine from netrition.com bc it's a tad cheaper but not by much. I just like you can order multiple things for a flat rate of 4.95 but their shipping isn't as fast as amazon either.

Low carb is the truth but I get bored with it.

Trudawg, what's the peanut butter cookie recipient with the carbquik, if you don't mind sharing?

You're right about that shipping, it's a helluva deal!

Peanut butter cookies

Carbquik Recipe: Peanut Butter Cookies



Ingredients:

3/4 cup chunky or smooth (sugarless/natural) peanut butter
1/2 cup Splenda
1 teaspoon blackstrap
1/4 cup heavy cream + (A teaspoon at a time to make the dough workable added after the Carbquik)
1/2 cup chopped pecans, almond pieces or broken hazelnuts
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 cup Carbquik + 1 tablespoon or as needed to form a nice workable cookie dough
2 teaspoons vanilla extract



Instructions:

Preheat oven to 375°F.
Mix all ingredients well and drop onto greased cookie sheet by teaspoonfuls.
Bake about 10 minutes, or until set but not hard. Be careful not to burn


The chocolate chip cookie recipes are bomb too. My girl loved to cook, and would hook me up after experimenting with sh*t till she got it right. She used a bread machine to make bread with carbquik, it was delish!
I should probably put some orders in today and stock up now.

Another oldie, but goodie is low-carb spaghetti. They sell these noodles at the regular Safeway around the way. Served up with fresh low-carb garlic bread and I'm in business!




I usually just use Hunts Four-Cheese sauce but they do make some specialty low-carb sauces

Could stand to lose 10-15 count me in!

I lost 15 lbs in a month when I did this years ago.

I worked out like a boss, supplemented with ACV and CLA (back when it was the rage), drank only water....

Sounds boring but my lil motto was nothing tastes as good as skinny feels.

You can try carb cycling. That's what a lot of body builders use when they're cutting. You have days with low carbs, high carbs, and no carbs. Keeps the body from plateauing. I've seen great results from it.

I tried keto (low carb) and I felt like sh*t. I'm hoping this will be a better option for me.


Thanks for those low carb goodies trudawg and kfox!!

I like the sounds of this. This harsh winter had me hibernating more than usual and its starting to show.

OP do you sustain this diet throughout the summer? Or just until you lose the weight? And if its the latter, do you find that you gain the weight back when you reincorporate carbs?

I suppose anyone can answer who has done a diet plan like this.

Na, many low-carb foods are high in fiber to offset the carbohydrates. A high fiber diet will help keep your pipes flowing smooth.
The breath, yea well, that's when you know your body has entered a state of ketosis. You'll have a metallic like taste on your tongue. Nothing a lil Listerine can't handle.


I will go down the list to tally all of our participants shortly, then edit my OP. Each day we'll post what we ate along with the macros.
It'll be a lot easier with other folks participating, can't wait!

About This Recipe

"I've read through a lot of recipes to come up with my version of this quiche. I wanted to make one that is crustless and low carb, and this one is a WINNER! But once I start eating it, I just don't want to stop! I thought I could make it ahead so I could have a quick breakfast on work mornings, but this rarely lasts out the day it was made!"

Ingredients

    • 1 lb bacon
    • 1 large onion, chopped
    • 2 tablespoons butter, divided
    • 1 teaspoon olive oil
    • 10 ounces frozen spinach, thawed
    • 6 ounces swiss cheese, shredded
    • 6 eggs
    • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
    • salt
    • pepper

Directions

  1. On a foil lined pan, cook bacon in 350 degree F. oven until crisp.
  2. While bacon cooks, chop onion and shred cheese.
  3. Heat 1 tablespoon butter and 1 teaspoon oil in skillet over medium heat. Add chopped onion, and stir to coat.
  4. When onion turns glossy, add thawed spinach, and stir to mix. Heat about 5 minutes, then remove from heat to cool.
  5. Remove bacon from oven, and place on a paper-towel lined plate to drain.
  6. Stir together eggs, salt, pepper & heavy whipping cream in a medium bowl.
  7. Add in cheese, onion/spinach mixture, and bacon. Stir thoroughly to mix.
  8. Butter a glass pie plate or quiche dish, pour mix in, and pat evenly with a fork.
  9. Bake in 350 degrees F. oven 25-30 minutes, or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
  10. Let rest 5 minutes before cutting & serving.

If I use twelve eggs which is my normal and just double the ingredients, I make half in a muffin pan and half in the quiche dish.  You can also do sausage or any kind of meat you like.  Just throw in whatever meat and veggies you want and it will still be yummyLOL

I've been low-carbing since January. I started the carb cycling today to see if that will speed up my weightloss.

I was worried about bananas too.  I want the nutrients but not the carbs.  My doctor recommended this and I LOVE it!!!  Fruit Punch taste, 2 carbs, more potassium than a banana.

Never really had any noticeable side affects, been doing it for years, but I know everyone is diff. I cut back once my appetite and cravings start to taper off.

The best part of this diet is that your appetite will virtually dissipate over time. Even when you stop the diet, you won't feel like eating much.

A Low Carb Diet Meal Plan and Menu That Can Save Your Life

This is a detailed meal plan for the low-carb, real-food based diet (LCRF). What to eat, what not to eat and a sample low carb menu for one week.

The low carb, real food based diet involves eating natural, unprocessed foods with a low carbohydrate content. For a detailed overview,  http://authoritynutrition.com/how-to-eat-healthy/" rel="nofollow - read this .

There is a lot of  http://authoritynutrition.com/23-studies-on-low-carb-and-low-fat-diets/" rel="nofollow - scientific evidence  that this type of diet is the best option for people who want to lose weight, optimize health and lower the risk of disease.

Simple Meal Plan

A Low Carb Diet Meal Plan

What foods you should eat depends on a few things, including how healthy you are, how much you exercise and how much weight you have to lose.

Consider all of this as a general guideline, not something written in stone.

The Basics

Eat: Meat, fish, eggs, vegetables, fruit, nuts, seeds, high-fat dairy, fats, healthy oils and maybe even some tubers and non-gluten grains.

Don’t Eat: Sugar, HFCS, wheat, seed oils, trans fats, artificial sweeteners, “diet” and low-fat products and highly processed foods.

Foods to Avoid

Overweight Man Eating Cake

You should  http://authoritynutrition.com/7-unhealthy-foods-to-avoid/" rel="nofollow - avoid these 7 foods , in order of importance:

  • Sugar: Soft drinks, fruit juices, agave, candy, ice cream and many others.
  • Gluten Grains: Wheat, spelt, barley and rye. Includes breads and pastas.
  • Trans Fats: “Hydrogenated” or “partially hydrogenated” oils.
  • High Omega-6 Seed- and Vegetable Oils: Cottonseed-, soybean-, sunflower-, grapeseed-, corn-, safflower and canola oils.
  • Artificial Sweeteners: Aspartame, Saccharin, Sucralose, Cyclamates and Acesulfame Potassium. Use Stevia instead.
  • “Diet” and “Low-Fat” Products: Many dairy products, cereals, crackers, etc.
  • Highly Processed Foods: If it looks like it was made in a factory, don’t eat it.
  • You MUST read ingredients lists, even on foods labelled as “health foods.”

    Low Carb Food List – Foods to Eat

    You should base your diet on these real, unprocessed, low-carb foods.

    Woman Holding Salad

    • Meat: Beef, lamb, pork, chicken and others. Grass-fed is best.
    • Fish: Salmon, trout, haddock and many others. Wild-caught fish is best.
    • Eggs: Omega-3 enriched or pastured eggs are best.
    • Vegetables: Spinach, broccoli, cauliflower, carrots and many others.
    • Fruits: Apples, oranges, pears, blueberries, strawberries.
    • Nuts and Seeds: Almonds, walnuts, sunflower seeds, etc.
    • High-Fat Dairy: Cheese, butter, heavy cream, yogurt.
    • Fats and Oils:  http://authoritynutrition.com/why-is-coconut-oil-good-for-you/" rel="nofollow - Coconut oil , butter, lard, olive oil and cod fish liver oil.
    • If you need to lose weight, be careful with the cheese and nuts because they’re easy to overeat on. Don’t eat more than one piece of fruit per day.

      Maybe Eat

      Sweet Potato

      If you’re healthy, active and don’t need to lose weight then you can afford to eat a bit more carbs.

      • Tubers: Potatoes, sweet potatoes and some others.
      • Non-gluten grains: Rice, oats, quinoa and many others.
      • Legumes: Lentils, black beans, pinto beans, etc. (If you can tolerate them).

      You can have these in moderation if you want:

      • Dark Chocolate: Choose organic brands with 70% cocoa or higher.
      • Wine: Choose dry wines with no added sugar or carbs.

      Dark chocolate is high in antioxidants and may provide health benefits if you eat it in moderation. However, be aware that both dark chocolate and alcohol will hinder your progress if you eat/drink too much.

      Glass of water

      Drink

      • http://authoritynutrition.com/why-is-coffee-good-for-you/" rel="nofollow - Coffee
      • http://authoritynutrition.com/stimulants-in-tea/" rel="nofollow - Tea
      • Water

It tastes like plain jello in spaghetti form but when you add sauce it's a good replacement for pasta. You have to get used to the texture though, it took me a while

So I'm starting my low carb high protein diet!

I'll be starting today and I'm starting with a bowl of scrambled eggs and a glass of water. :D

You know, doing research into this, it is not as hard as I thought it would be. I've always turned my head up at diets because I like food and feel I can be healthy without food restrictions that aren't caloric.


If I go into ketosis and my breath stinks, at least I'll be losing the weight. LOL Since high school, I've plateaued in my weight range of 170 to 180 (highest being 185.)

This seems like a lot yet on me it doesn't appear that way because I'm quite tall. I do like my body, but I'd like to slim down some. I don't have a specific goal weight but a goal range and that is from 160 to 140. Tongue

To aid in my journey, I am taking Raspberry Ketones and Garcinia Cambogia. I'm using the ones from NatureWise- they're a fantastic brand!

I just found out corn is not only classified as a vegetable.. but corn is also classified as a GRAIN!!

I LOVE CORN!! Cry

It'll be my cheat day meal. Man, I love eating elote and I thought the mayonnaise and parmesean cheese was what was gonna up the nutritional value and pack on the carbs.

Turns out it's the corn! Cry

I'm so tempted to just go all out on meat and eggs to up that protein but I'm doing some research and found a pretty sensible warning!

Everyone, go high on your protein, but not CRAZY high! It turns out the body can convert some protein into glucose. Do too much of that and you can actually delay ketosis because your body can turn excessive protein into sugar (and inside of you! Smh! I gotta taste the sweetness before I put it in me!) which would basically nullify your efforts in avoiding sugar and prevent ketosis.

Thinking about making some deep fried avocado fries! Just replace the flower with either carbquik or almond flour and the bread-crumbs for crushed pork rhines


Deep Fried Avocado Wedges

Ingredients

Canola oil, for frying
1/4 cup all purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 large eggs, beaten
1 1/4 cups Panko breadcrumbs
2 ripe avocados, cut into 1/2 inch wedges

Directions

Heat 2-3 inches of oil in large pan to 375 degrees.

Combine the flour and salt in a shallow dish. Put the eggs and breadcrumbs in separate shallow dishes.

Dip the wedges in the flour mixture, remove and shake off excess flour. Dip it in the egg, followed by the breadcrumbs.

Fry the wedges in batches for about 1 minute or until golden brown, flipping once. Drain on paper towels. Enjoy!

I never wanted to say I was on a low carb diet, but I guess that's what I did. Last spring I lost 15lbs I gained and I did it by cutting out soda/juice and eating bread/rice/pasta only one day out the week and only one serving. Rest of the days lean meats, veggies, fruits and occasionally hot wings.  I also exercise throughout the day totaling about an hour a day. I've been doing well with that since Dec. Then end of January, I decided to go meatless three days out of week and only eat WHOLE GRAIN rice and bread on those days. I've since lost another 5lbs. However, though whole wheat is better than white, I don't want to feel the need to always have bread/rice. 

So I will be looking forward to recipes and tips in this thread.

Bingo! That's why I said I never wanted to say I was on a low carb diet. Everything I do now is for a lifetime. But there are other benefits of being on a low card diet as well.

Yeah this low carb diet thing is going to be temporary but I'm going to alter my regular diet to be similar. I guess I'll do that carb cycling deal as a part of my regular diet.

Anyway, today I did some grocery shopping. Didn't buy anything special. Just bought cheese, romaine lettuce, baked chicken, cherry tomatoes, raw chicken breast and raw beef. I also bought some yummy protein bars but those I can only eat once a day due to it having 25g of carbs. It's such a delicious protein bar- it's called PoeerBar and their peanut butter chocolate bar is the GOAT!

I'm gonna have some eggs later. :D

I found that out long ago as well. I love corn too. I haven't had it in a while though. 

I clink on the recipe link someone posted above and I'm researching about coconut flour.
